Commitment to One -- Openness to Others: A Challenge for Christians

Knitter, Paul

As we so often hear, Christians of every new generation, or in any new cultural context, have to answer for themselves the question Jesus posed for the first generation of disciples: "Who do you say I am?" (Mk 8:27) This is a question that can be answered only in the light of other questions—that is, the personal, social, political, scientific questions we find ourselves grappling with in our own age and experience. The meaning of Jesus "becomes flesh" again in the meaning and direction we struggle for in our own times.
